As the headline implies, this post is about podcasts, but not my own. I was actually thrilled and honored to be part of two of them. And the other one hasn’t happened yet, but I am very excited about the idea. Here goes:
Have you heard of the Everybody Talks podcast? From TuDiabetes, the podcast delves into many of the facets of life with diabetes, with really interesting people. I was so happy to join Corinna Cornejo to introduce and recap Emily Coles’ conversation with diabetes nurse, CDE, advocate, and researcher Jane K. Dickinson. Jane has been researching the many words that affect people living with diabetes, and their effects on our psyche and the management of our diabetes. It’s a fascinating discussion, and I encourage you to take some time to listen to it. If you’re a healthcare professional of any kind, you will find this talk a treasure trove of useful information that will help you communicate with diabetes patients better than ever before.

I really feel like I hit the big time this week, when I was interviewed by Christopher Snider for his Just Talking podcast. The first half of that conversation might be a little difficult to listen to… as the interview went on, my BGs were going lower and lower until I finally had to take a break and treat a 59. I can hear myself really straining for every word there for a bit.
Anyway, it was a terrific hour spent with someone I admire and respect a great deal. We talked about this blog, how I found the Diabetes Online Community, how the idea to give away medals to athletes with diabetes came about, and also my podcast, Diabetes By The Numbers. It’s available right now via iTunes, Stitcher Radio, and at justtalkingpodcast.com.

Finally, a quick note about a great idea. This is my way of trying to help spread the word about Diabetes Podcast Week, which is coming up in February! Stacey Simms of the Diabetes Connections podcast came up with the idea, and we’ll all be producing podcasts to air during the week of February 1. Even better, each podcaster will be leading the charge in encouraging everyone to join the Partnership for Diabetes Change in supporting the annual Spare A Rose, Save A Child campaign.
I am very much looking forward to participating with the rest of my fellow diabetes podcasters (am I really allowed to say that after 9 episodes?) on this worthy endeavor. Mark your calendars for February 1!
While I’m at it, let me just throw out a reminder that if you have something diabetes-related you’d like to talk about; or, if you know of a good diabetes story that should be told, send me an e-mail by clicking on the E-mail Stephen link in the upper left corner of this page. Talk to you soon!
